The Wise And Foolish Builders

We have all heard a version of the story : The Three Pigs. One built their house out of straw. One built out of wood. The other brick and mortar. None of them truly had a solid foundation. You can build a house of any material, however it stands longer and weathers the storms if it built on a solid foundation. That is how God expects us to be. He provides the foundation. Jesus keeps you in the house.
Matthew 7:24-28

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
